"You are a lesbian!" Just kidding. Read on...

DANBURY, Conn. -- The News-Times has apologized and fired a copy editor who put an offensive caption on its Web page under a photo of a girls' high school soccer team.

The Immaculate High School girls' team was celebrating a goal scored in a championship-clinching win Nov. 5. The newspaper's Web site published a photograph of the jubilant team, but said it was celebrating a teammate's decision to "come out of the closet as a lesbian."

The copy editor, who was not identified, was "goofing around". more here

Elvis' Last Pair of Sunglasses, really!

What you are looking at is the last pair of sunglasses that Elvis Presley ever had! Really.

The picture is so small and grainey because I took it with my camera phone while I was at a customer of mine. He is a sunglass broker and was able to secure the spectacles and enclosed them in this glass and brass case.

They currently reside in Lebanon, NJ at his store.

For those of you that wonder: Yes, I did get permission to post these on the blog after he quipped: "What the hell is a blog?"

I have a question to my fellow bloggers: How long ago did you start blogging? Who inspired you to blog? Why do you continue to blog? Do you like or LOVE comments on your blog?

Doesn't it seem like everywhere you look, there are blogs? MSNBC, CNN, etc... I thought blogs were for "us", not them.
